Record Turnout Expected For 27th Annual White Castle' Valentine's Day Dinner

Reservations for this year's White Castle Valentine's Day dinner are as hot as the steam-grilled-on-a-bed-of-onions Original Slider and the limited seats are almost all taken. But, there are still a few left for last-minute Cravers looking for a unique Valentine's Day experience. For the first time since the event's inception, diners can now book reservations online through or the OpenTable app, the world's leading provider of online restaurant reservations, making it simpler than ever to make this year's Valentine's Day plans.

"Love is in the air at White Castle as we celebrate this joyous holiday with a special Valentine's Day dinner for our most dedicated Cravers and soon to be lifelong fans," said Jamie Richardson, White Castle vice president. "This heartwarming, family-friendly event is perfect for Cravers of all ages."

This fun and unique dinner has been a popular staple for Cravers across the country for 27 years, including the infamous couple who moved to Montana and had no Castle nearby, so they drove 26 hours to their favorite Castle in Illinois to continue their annual Valentine's Day tradition. "We got back just in time to go to bed and be ready to go back to work in the morning," the couple said.

Last year, White Castle hosted nearly 26,000 people at various locations for Valentine's Day, and anticipates serving a record number of customers for this year's event.

"Every year, reservations fill up quickly at most of our Castles," Richardson said. "We encourage Cravers everywhere to book their reservations through OpenTable, or contact our regional offices, as soon as possible to ensure they are able to join in on the celebration. This is the ultimate way to celebrate with your favorite Craver on Valentine's Day."
